    Default How to use Beyond Compare 4 in eclipse with GIT on Linux platform 64bit

    Hi to all,
    I need help. I don’t know how to configure eclipse to use Beyond compare 4 on linux platform (64bit).
    I use GIT (version 1.9.1) as versioning system.

    There is a plugin, called “Beyond CVS Eclipse Plug-Inhttp://beyondcvs.sourceforge.net/, but it does not work with GIT.

    I also followed the instructions of this page http://www.scootersoftware.com/vbull...hlight=eclipse
    But it works only with local files.

    moreover, it is not clear for me the instructions of the page http://www.scootersoftware.com/suppo...b_vcs#gitlinux

    Is there a way to use beyond compare inside eclipse having GIT?
    Thanks in advance. Leonardo

    Hello,

    The only method we are aware of to incorporate with Git is to use the BeyondCVS plug-in. Otherwise, does Eclipse offer any other means to define an external diff tool? If so, we can incorporate and use those, as we do with these:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/support.php?zz=kb_vcs

    We also have instructions on that page to define BC4 as Git's diff/merge tool in Linux, but this does not include Eclipse integration.

    Hi,
    thanks for your quick reply!
    I have just updated my previous post, in order to include the page you have linked.
    I have executed the instructions

    Diff
    Confirm that "bcompare" can be launched from Terminal. Then in a console window enter:
    $ git config --global diff.tool bc3
    $ git config --global difftool.bc3 trustExitCode true
    To launch a diff using Beyond Compare, use the command "git difftool file.ext".

    but, unfortunately, it is not clear for me what I have to do after these instructions.
    what is changed inside eclipse after I ran these instructions in a shell. what is the next step?
    thank you for your patience, Leonardo

    Sorry, those instructions aren't for Eclipse. I mentioned that section in case it helps call a Git Diff from the command line, outside of Eclipse. If Eclipse can hook into this with more recent versions, it might help, but I am not aware that it has this capability. The only method I know of to use a diff tool within Eclipse is BeyondCVS, which is a plug-in created by Chris and Nick of the open source community, and isn't managed by Scooter Software.
